Diamondbacks announcer refers to Paul Goldschmidt as ‘Paul Golds**t’ (video)

Poor Arizona Diamondbacks television guy Steve Berthiaume. Here he was, simply trying to provide some competent, informative and insightful analysis during a broadcast when he was presented with a name that can be so easily misspoken. Berthiaume attempts to say the name of Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt but instead says “Paul Golds**t.” It’s funny […]The post...

Michelangelo’s ‘The Creation of Adam’ with Bear Bryant and Nick Saban (pic)

An establishment Tuscaloosa, Ala. has combined arguably one of most well-known pieces of art from the Renaissance and two of the most-beloved figures in Alabama Crimson Tide football lore.

Pumped-up kid loves staying up late, Captain America, headbands, U.S. Open (GIF)

Bedtime? He don’t need no stinkin’ bedtime. This excitable young little whippersnapper was probably pretty pumped up to begin with for being able to stay up way past his bedtime to take in some U.S. Open action on Wednesday night, but his excitement meter red-lined after American tennis star James Blake broke Ivo Karlović to […]The post Pumped-up kid loves staying up late...

Baserunning derpness: Logan Morrison, Donovan Solano both slide into third (video)

The past two seasons for the Miami Marlins — the first two in the team’s garish new ballpark — have been as a whole unmitigated disasters. The gamble to hire Ozzie Guillen in an effort to drum up interest ended up not paying off with the volatile skipper being fired after a terrible 69-93 season.

Andrew Luck visits high school player who suffered serious injury in hospital (photo)

High school sophomore Steven Bailey plays football for the Edinburgh High School (Ind.) football team. A relatively innocuous and seemingly rudimentary play during a game last Friday nearly had tragic consequences for the young man. Bailey was tackled just before halftime. Everything seemed relatively fine afterward until the 15-year-old collapsed during halftime. Ambulances apparently...

Creepy girl from ‘Ringu’/'The Ring’ throws out first pitch before game in Japan (video)

Here in the U.S., ceremonial first pitches have developed into an amusing aside, a way to amuse fans before the actual first pitch of a ball game. Oftentimes, the person throwing out the first pitch is a flavor-of-the-month pop star/actor/actress who happens to be in town promoting their most recent project. Other times, it’s a […]The post Creepy girl from ‘Ringu’/'The...

Michigan recruit Jabrill Peppers breaks tackle after tackle on brilliant TD run (video)

Even though this occurred during a scrimmage, the incredible 30-yard touchdown jaunt broken off by Paramus Catholic High’s (N.J.) Jabrill Peppers is about as good of a run you’ll ever see. Bouncing off tacklers, changing direction, shaking off would-be tackler after would-be tackler, this run by the 6’1″, 210-pound Peppers is simply and utterly dazzling. […]The post Michigan...

That’s a shame. As the saying goes, “There’s no ‘I’ in ‘team’ and no ‘A’ in ‘responsible’”. Well, the first part is the old saying, the last part was added for explanatory purposes. “Hoover Football Cannot Be Held Responsable For Ruffled Feathers.” Also, the Alabama high school system cannot be held responsible for its students […]The post Gimme an A...

Japanese baseball team rocks denim unis

Now, that’s a look. The Hiroshima Carp, who play pro baseball in Japan’s Central League, have made the curious decision — perhaps as a nod to baseball’s origins in America and our people’s affinity for denim (I guess) — of sporting an all-faux-denim look for an alternate uniform.
